In some ways it's less of a "big release" than I wanted while in other ways it's more. The biggest aspect of this release which isn't reflected in the blurb below is the record number of commits by persons other than myself, particularly nsz and John Spencer. I didn't realize how much was going to be new in this release until I sat down to write the change log and looked back at how much they'd done. Thanks! I know we also have some pending patches from other contributors that didn't make it into this release, and some work of my own that's not ready to commit yet. I'm looking forward to taking care of these after the release, now that we have a bit more freedom to make bigger changes without worrying about breaking an impending release. With that said, musl 0.9.9 features: Major compatibility improvements, including Linux-specific features, GNU extension functions, grsec kernel quirks compatibility, and workarounds for subtle but dangerous portability errors in some programs. Size, performance, and correctness improvements to the math library. Numerous low-impact bugs fixed. http://www.musl-libc.org/releases/musl-0.9.9.tar.gz There's a bunch of post-release agenda spread across several other threads on the mailing list which I won't try to summarize at the moment; let's just say there's lots of good stuff left to be done on musl in the next few release cycles leading towards a 1.0... Cheers, Rich
